Callifornia Assembly Votes To Allow Communists To Hold State Jobs

Quote:


California may end a decades-old ban on members of the Communist Party working in its government, after the state Assembly approved a bill that would delete references to the party from its employment requirements.

The bill's sponsor, Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, said that California's laws should focus on individuals' actions and evidence rather than political affiliations and what he termed "empty labels."

Speaking on the floor of the Assembly, Bonta called the legislation a "cleanup bill that removes archaic and outdated references to the Communist Party in our state laws, specifically those stating that a public employee may be dismissed from employment if he or she advocates or is knowingly a member of the Communist Party."

The bill passed in a 41-30 vote, after a debate that touched on the Cold War, the U.S. history of fighting communism ó and the potential for future conflicts.

While Bonta called the measure "an appropriate step forward" for the state, three of his Republican colleagues in the California Assembly rose to speak against the bill, AB 22.

California is California and they have a vested right to seek their own destiny.

I'm all for states rights but progressives believe that they are subjective.

Spoilers ahead:

Despite being one of Marvel Comics' most idealistic and incorruptible superheroes, Captain America is now being written as perhaps one of the company's greatest villains. With the release of Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 today, Marvel has revealed that Cap has operated as sleeper agent for Hydra, the fictional terrorist organization closely associated with the Nazis, from the very beginning.

In an interview with Time, Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort said that the plan to make Cap a villain has been in development since 2014, and aims to capture some of what's happening in politics today ó particularly when it comes to discovering the ugly sides of our beloved public figures.

"THERE SHOULD BE A FEELING OF HORROR OR UNSETTLEDNESS AT THIS IDEA."

"There should be a feeling of horror or unsettledness at the idea that somebody like this can secretly be part of this organization," he said. After all, Hydra is associated with terror and hate speech in the comics. "There are perfectly normal people in the world who you would interact with on a professional level or personal level, and they seem like the salt of the earth but then it turns out they have some horrible secret ó whether itís that they donít like a certain group of people or have bodies buried in their basement."

Not to try to stay on topic or anything like that, but why shouldn't a person with a state job be free to associate with a political party?

It has taken a long time to get shot of the witch-hunters, hasn't it? In most countries they died off in the Seventeenth Century, but the American climate seems to benefit anachronistic Nazi scumbags.
